Carmine Miranda: Dvorak’s Diverse Concerto

June 19, 2016

Carmine has much to say in defense of offering a fresh, new reading of a work like Dvorak's concerto, no matter how familiar it might be to some, and let me say his new release is proof. The recording of the Schumann and Dvorak cello concerti was released (at the time of writing) just over a week ago and is fantastic. 
There were a few "aha" moments for me discussing what must be one of the most famous cello concertos there is, as Mr. Miranda brings some insight into how the cello concerto is unique among the other works the composer wrote during his time in America, and you can't miss it when you listen. The things that make this work unique, the parts of himself that Dvorak brought to the work seem also to be things with which Miranda identifies, and the result is a crystal clear, powerful interpretation of a work that you just might hear in a new way. Go listen.
